Doubling the voltage may not allow you to charge it faster. If the battery recharging is current limited (as suggested by the 8-hour number), it won’t help at all.

Did you read all of what I wrote? Tesla is already introducing a 220-volt charger to cut charge time from 8 hours to 4 hours. Although I certainly suspect that the batteries would have to be configured to take faster charging.
